I have been working at Day & Zimmermann full-time for more than 5 yearsPros
I liked the experiences I've had there. The work is good, I've learned a lot, but my job is pretty much the same every day.Cons
1) They talk about Safety being huge there (which doesn't typically apply to the everyday worker at the corporate office) but when the city of Philadelphia shuts down for Hurricane Sandy for 2 days or a huge snowfall that the city cannot keep roads clear, the CEO sends an email saying that the office is open & we can wear jeans. They make it a huge deal to make sure that the managers are keeping their people safe (& they do a good job of telling employees to stay home but that means one of your days off) but heaven forbid that the CEO follows the mayor's orders for people to stay out of the city.
2) The health care sucks!!! It's expensive & doesn't cover a lot AT ALL.
3) They're in the CBS building so you're 1/4 mi north of center city. There is a shuttle that runs in the morning & again in the evenings. It's fine except when it's not running during the day or when shuttle A fails to make it back in time for a scheduled pickup & shuttle B that is next in line after shuttle A will just sit at the end of the street & not pick up anyone because it's not their scheduled time. Or when you get an overly talkative driver or other passengers. Also, since they're on Spring Garden the food is pretty much junk food around there (pizza, chinese, or expensive saladworks).Advice to ManagementAdvice
Don't tell everyone that you care about safety but expect me to drive through Hurricane Sandy to get to work because you don't want to give us the day off. Just stop doing everything to cut costs. At some point it's going to backfire & make people regret taking the job. Also, hire more IT folks to fix SAP issues. Do whatever you need to keep the co-ops full time because they're needed. Sometimes they're the only ones who are reliable to fix an issue quickly.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookDisapproves of CEO
